This week, I’m sharing a quote from Ronda Rousey’s book My Fight Your Fight. This book in my opinion is excellent, 5 stars, it truly moved me this year (see my previous blog Book Review on it). This quote specifically speaks to me, because how many times do we fight ourselves? As women, we judge ourselves quickly. I think men judge too – but as a woman, I know for sure we are guilty of judging, it’s innate, part of the DNA.
Right now I’m working on my first novel, I feel differently about the process this go around – yes, I’ve attempted this before, a couple of times. I’m not fighting myself about it, this go around. The inner critic has some duct tape over its mouth and is tied up in the basement. I feel wiser, a little more experienced. I hired a writing coach, where we mesh personality wise, to push me along. I’m in the ring and I’m fighting for it. I want to win. It may not be perfect, I may get beat up some, but I’m coming out of that ring a winner.
What are you fighting yourself about? Are you ready to take those steps to stop fighting yourself and win? Let me know in the comments below, love hearing from you. If you can relate and enjoyed the quote, simply hit the like button.
